American Ale has opened at 14 East Cota Street, the former home of El Taco Tequila Taqueria and Square One. American Ale is the second location for the Union Ale Company which opened their first restaurant at 214 State Street in 2009.
“American Ale is a place that goes back to the basics,” says owner Matthew Jameson-Chrestenson. “It’s about true craft. No TVs, no point-of-sale, no happy hour. American Ale represents the real American dream. A place where people can come to relax, think and enjoy conversation without the distractions of modern today. A place where the food is prepared simple and delicious. Back to the basics for the true American.”
American Ale offers a selection of American craft beer on draft including American Ale Blonde, IPA, Double, Amber/Red Ale, Black Ale, Barleywine, Stout and Pale.
The menu lists a series of fresh ground burgers including the Make’N Bacon Burger (with maple bacon jam, bacon, Italian bacon, Canadian Bacon and American cheese), American Burger (double patty cooked with grilled onions and American cheese), Baron Von Burger (Munster cheese, garlic dill sauerkraut, caramelized onions, whole grain mustard), Firehouse Burger (crispy onions, habañero cheese, fresh diced chili, fried egg and cilantro jalapeño mustard sauce), Ole Southern BBQ Burger (frittos corn chips, havarti cheese, smoked bacon, and chipotle-peach BBQ sauce), Blue Horseradish Burger (Munster and blue cheese, fresh tomato slice, arugula and roasted poblano horseradish sauce) and PB&J Burger (crispy bacon, extra chunky peanut butter and grape jelly).
